Look at the third post. Been collecting since 2008.
Three years and you can't find a job, that's system abuse..Nobody will hand you the perfect job. There are lots of jobs. Maybe not exactly what you want, but you have to walk before you run.
Some people are spoiled and think they are too good to take a job at less money than they made after working someplace for 20 yrs. While you are on the computer reading "Topix" you could be looking for a job instead of looking in the mailbox. Man or woman up..get out of your pajamas and get looking..Unemployment and Disability, the most abused government resources.


while i agree with you, my father was terminally ill and he was unable to work...hell...most people abuse the system but there are people who no longer can work ...he wished he could he really did..he passed away at the age of 47

It hasn't been the 810 weeks yet but the system is not letting me certify, online or over phone. It says my call cannot be taken at this time. I've tried every menu option to get through and all I get is a recording saying an email has been sent and they have my name email and phone number and someone will be contacting me. I've waited over a week (I know others have waited longer) but it is ridiculous that I can't speak to someone. About to go to career center and see if they can tell me anything.
Hope you get help

That's the first thing you should have done. Going to the career center and talking to a human being.

I have my unemployment set up to be paid through direct deposit. I am all set up online in the system, and am going to be making my first claim on 6/17/14. Any idea how long after submitting I should expect to see the money?

When I was fired last year for nothing I didn't get payments until 3 months passed. Since I was homeless for sometime I couldn't claim some weeks. It took me 4 months to get that back pay. I was able to get out of homelessness without getting the Unemployment. It was hard. The money I received in back pay was able to pay any bills that I incurred during homelessness. I just caught up and was let go for no reason again. So I won't be making rent this month. I live in a different state now and three weeks have gone by. I don't expect a cent until I start working in July. It is tough, the best thing to do is to try to save because, there is no such thing as job stability anymore. It is easier said then done if you keep getting let go, fired, or laid off you have to spend your savings to live.

Oh yeah I was hung up on by a rep after being on hold for 45 minutes because, she didn't feel like looking that they approved my back pay and I requested it to be deposited. Maybe they should get laid off and let someone who is looking for work take over.

It is really ridiculous it took a total of 7 months to get everything. Don't depend on these people.

hello bre. it sounds like u have $$ in the bank. the majority of ppl dont. for example i have $12 in the bank. i received one check in a month for $110.00 and have put in at least 20 apps. don't judge til ur in other ppls boat. i don't have somebody taking care of me like u. so keep ur mouth shut. if i dont get a job in maybe 3 weeks,i will b homeless w no car have no meds. iam currently on about 9 . my dogs also on pain meds. are u that cruel harded that u can actually judge me, if u arent concerned about getting an employment check, then u dont need one. ur probably sitting on ur ass being taken care of by ur husband.. school is not an option. i cannot even read. my memory is shot from too many overdoses. so bitch shut the f off til ur in my situation.

I filed to unemployment in May. I received a letter that told me my benefit amount. I've been filing for the last 8weeks because it went to adjudication. I finally received a letter7/31 saying I qualified and my payments had been processed on 7/30. On my benefit amount paper it says I will receive the debit card within 8-10 days of my first payment being processed. But I've been reading and it looks like you all received your card first before you even knew if you were approved or not. Is that right?

Yes you can go to school and collect unemployment so long as you are going for a technical certification that will not last longer then 18 months some states shorter. I collected unemployment while going to school. Educate yourself.
